Marshawn Lynch headed to Honolulu

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham Lynch
The Buffalo Bills lost their lone Pro Bowler when tackle Jason Peters pulled out with a knee injury.

But they're about to get one back. Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson will not play in Honolulu because of the ankle injury he suffered in the playoff loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

That opens the door for first alternate Marshawn Lynch to make his first Pro Bowl roster.

A shoulder injury sidelined Lynch for the season finale against the New England Patriots, but he has been cleared to play in the Pro Bowl.

Lynch will be the ninth Bills running back to be named to a Pro Bowl or the AFL All-Star game. The others were Cookie Gilchrist, Bobby Burnett, Keith Lincoln, O.J. Simpson, Joe Cribbs, Greg Bell, Thurman Thomas and Travis Henry.
